Ky. (WBKO) -- Monday is the official start to filing your state and federal income taxes, and Kentucky's attorney general is asking people to be prepared for an increase in scammer calls.

In a press release, Andy Beshear said scams typically involve scammers pretending to be an IRS agent who ask for personal and financial info over the phone.

Beshear said to never share any of this information over the phone, and know that federal, local and state agencies would never call to request money over the phone.
